Andy Harris and Vantage Mortgage made what can be a tortuous process (refinance) as easy and straightforward as possible. Communication at every step was outstanding: prompt, clear, informative and professional. Many responses to emails came within minutes. The process itself was greatly simplified by the use of a very clearly written checklist of needed documents and the ability to send all documents electronically to a secure server. Andy made clear the advantages and disadvantages of available interest rate and term (duration) strategies, all of which were highly competitive and usually the best available on the market. Andy was diligent in follow up and follow through. We can't recommend Andy and Vantage Mortgage highly enough.

I can't say enough good things about our experience working with Andy. At first, I was a little hesitant about working with someone out of state, but after much research and communication, found that he was better than any local broker. He always goes above and beyond, and walked us through the entire process from the very beginning to the end. He was even on vacation in Hawaii at one point, and was still responding to my emails immediately late into the night. His knowledge, integrity, and personal attention to matters is beyond measure. I have and will continue to refer his services to all my friends and family.

It was actually through reading his reviews and support on Zillow that I discovered Andy. I had already been dealing with two other mortgage providers each which had a couple week lead time on my process. Andy surpassed them in a day of starting to help me.

Things that make working with Andy awesome:

1. Process is very modern. Online forms that work great. Extremely easy to send the correct documents. What took me days with another provider I had done in 15 minutes with Andy's firm. 2. He is extremely informative and transparent. I felt I could ask any question at any time. I never felt stupid or like I was being annoying. 3. His response time is awesome. I was in the middle of a relocation and would hit him up at weird times and days. He responded within the hour and usually within 15 min. even when he was on vacation. 4. I got a wonderful rate. But more than that I got a complete understanding of all of my options. I was able to make an informed decision. 5. I really NEEDED to close early but my process was complex. Not only did he get it done early but fought to do it down to the last day. I asked him for the *almost* impossible and he made it work. He never promised he could do it but, he was trying like hell the whole time.

I will work with him again and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a person rather than a faceless or corporation.

Andy was fully attentive to my inquiries and requests for information, diligent in explaining my options. A true professional and very easy to work with. Would highly recommend him (already have) to friends and family. You know its a good experience when you find other friends have worked with Andy/AM in the same capacity and you're sharing your great experiences.

Gave me a quote on Zillow, but it did not work out. Harmony Point, Happy Valley, OR 97086
Andy is by far the best mortgage broker I've encountered. While we weren't immediately looking to buy at the time we contacted him, he was patient with us, gave us an extensive amount of information within 24 hours, and checked in with the perfect amount of persistence without being pushy. He will go out of his way to find the absolute best option, and you get the sense that he loves what he does and wants to help people. His reviews on Zillow are accurate. He truly is the best in the industry. The only reason we did not buy through him is because we ultimately decided to move out of State. Regardless, we obviously highly recommend him.

Andy Harris helped us get into our first home. We had spoke to other mortgage broker's in the past, but the process seemed very confusing so we never proceeded. When we found Andy on Zillow and read all the great reviews, we decided to try again. We're so glad we did! Andy patiently explained and answered all of our questions. He sent us tools to educate ourselves on the home-buying process and made it a very smooth process for us. He kept us updated throughout the entire process and stayed in constant communication (even on the weekends.). We really appreciate Andy and his efficiency at getting us into our new home. He may have several other customers, but you would never know it. He seemed very genuine and really wanted to help us. When we move in the future, we will definitely be using Andy Harris of Vantage Mortgage again!

Closed purchase loan.
Our loan (FHA multi-family) was very doc heavy. However, Andy made the process easy. Our goal was to come in with as little down as possible. Andy was able to get us no-closing costs loan with great rate. We didn’t even have to ask the seller for any credit. In fact we had so much additional credit that we were able to buy down the rate by further 1/4 of a point. We are very happy with the loan. Will definitely do business with Andy and Vantage Mortgage Group again in the future.

I would like to thanks Andy Harris for being so efficient, productive, knowledgeable and most of all worth of five stars in mortgage industry.

Being a first time home buyer I was very confused, overwhelmed and had tons of questions revolving in my mind. I went to different banks, lenders and found everybody has different story and grey area they play with. I searched online and found Andy Harris who is very professional straight forward and most important he has accurate answers to all my mortgage questions. Andy got me the best rate possible in the market with the lowest closing cost.

Andy's knowledge and revert time is phenomenal . Every bank/ lender has long list of required documents, Andy updated me on every step of the loan process and was a step ahead in document collection and made my transaction very smooth.

I am glad that I went with him and I will defiantly go with him in future
